Fabrication & Installation:

ACCLIMATION + SITE CONDITIONS

Ensure product is maintained at 35-55% relative humidity throughout fabrication and installation. Bamboo, like hardwood, may expand or contract when exposed to high or low relative humidity.

 

 

ADHESIVES

Most common woodworking adhesives suitable to the cabinet and furniture manufacturing industry have been used successfully and can be recommended such as polyvinyl acetates (PVA) glue and aliphatic resin glue (yellow glue)

 

 

LAMINATION

Veneer may be cold molded, vacuum pressed or hot pressed. Veneer and substrate must both have the same moisture content prior to laminating.

 

 

RADIUS APPLICATIONS

1/42” and 2-ply veneer are best used for a radius application when laminated to a kerfed or flexible substrate. 1/8” Traditional and Strand bamboo panels may also be considered for moderate radius applications

 

 

CUTTING AND TOOLING

Standard hardwood woodworking guidelines apply, carbide tipped tools recommended.

 

 

FASTENING

Pilot holes, pre-drilling, oversized slots for screw inserts, panel clips or other methods that allow for expansion and contraction are necessary for unrestrained applications and countertops.
